THE CITY-ON-THE-BAYOU For the second consecutive year, the official student body football trip led Centenary students to Houston, where the Gentlemen, it was rumored, played Rice. Surprisingly enough, the 1940 trip was a very quiet one. The train trip both down and returning looked more like a tired house party than a football trip. Aside from an occasional pair of loaded dice, and a funny smelling coke bottle or two, all actions were above suspicion. It seems, rather, that all the fun was had in the city itself. Those South Main street joints came in for their share of the sucker-money, and the tenth floor of the Texas State Hotel saw some scenes that would make a Kappa Sigma blush. The elevator operators are reported to have held a convention on that floor, with mouths wide open, and eyes popping. As usual, Centenary Gentlemen had trouble •with Aggies down for the week-end, who insisted on taking over the girls they had been led by some strange reason to believe had come down to see them in the first place. But, as is customary, the trip went down in history as a very un- eventful episode in the lives of the three hundred who dared make it.

STUDENT SENATE From the end of the picnic last May 2nd after all the candidates and their managers had promised everything from optional classes to ice cream with every registration, until September, things were quietly seething in the realm of student government. For the newly- elected officers had some hot ideas they were anxious to try out, and they made it known that they thought themselves a little dif- ferent from student officers of previous years. They had promised action, and action they proposed to give. So when September came around, the first Conglomerate screamed, " Sweeping Student Senate Changes Proposed, " and the lid was off. Keynote in the new program was a more representative scheme of membership; this they proposed to do by allotting the membership by campus oganizations. By October, the plan had been adopted by the student body, and the senate met, full of vigor and enthusi- asm. But the thing that the new officers had not foreseen was the lack of power that was theirs. Everything they tried to do met with opposition either financially or administratively or internally. So, hampered with an ever-changing membership, and lack of some- thing to do, the Student Senate found itself in the same position that its predecessors had been — in the lurch. But we found that we hadn ' t reckoned with " Wild Bill " Steger, " Rounder " Hearne, " Gertrude " Maynard, and the other big-wigs, when we thought the Senate was licked. Among its accomplish- ments (?) of the year were the Frosh-Soph tug-of-war, discussion of the honor system, and the annual Founder ' s Day picnic. So the Senate asserted itself this year, for the first time, and at least laid the groundwork for some fine future student government in years to come.

Which is the sucker? FROSH-SOPH TUG OF WAR The Student Senate has always had one problem it had never be- fore been able to solve. It was how to end the freshman rules in a dignified manner, without letting it seem that they just petered out. This year the problem was solved, and a new tradition established. Credit goes to the Senate ' s Freshman Orientation chairman, Charles Knight, from whose fertile brain full many a sharp scheme has come in his few years on this earth (numerically). For Chairman Knight conceived, arranged for, engineered, and put on the first freshman-sohomore tug of war ever to be seen on Cen- tenary ' s venerable campus. It was a very short affair — the freshmen winning it with a slight tug, and pulling the sophs in the path of a fire hose which had been conveniently arranged for. The sophs, led by their president of doubtful sophomority, Carl Vollmer, were the underdogs from the very beginning, and hadn ' t a Chinaman ' s chance. So the frosh rules ended very gracefully, and everyone called the experiment a social success, and forgot about it. The question is, what will they do next year?
